This short film aims to deliver strong messages about Fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD) and drinking during pregnancy. It was community-written and performed by the people of Barkly, Northern Territory with the use of puppet characters to convey the key messages.

The film follows the story of Matias, a seven year old boy living with FASD in Tennant Creek, Northern Territory. His mother is pregnant and wants to make sure the new baby does not have FASD like Matias. The video follows the challenges families can face when it comes to alcohol and pregnancy.
